One of the most difficult jobs is to make people laugh and if you have to do it with spontaneity then it becomes even more difficult.
There are many acts and genre you must have seen in the recent years, and out of those I think “Observational” needs a special talent to have an eye on things around you that can form an outstanding standup act. There are few artists, who are now a global icon and have mastered this genre.
Today, I bring to you my top 5 stand-up acts from these top trending comedians on Netflix. Few may have gone unnoticed but once you’ll watch them, you cannot resist to give them a loud applause.
